I came across this article in my dear feline friends blog site Natural Cat Care Blog and had to investigate further and if this product i available online and available in the UK as well as the U.S and have found te website which is http://www.litterone.com/shop/custom.aspx/products/2/
My dear feline friend has recently tried one of these new natural litter and box system that may be particularly interesting to cats owners those particularly with mobility limitations and a deeply eco-friendly and to stop using the ordinary conventional plastic litter tray.
More on that in a moment, but first: based on my own experience and what I’m hearing from you, our biggest cat litter concerns are:
- will my cat use the litter? (essential!)
- does it reduce odor and keep things sanitary (without using chemicals oressential oils)?
- is it ecological?
- does it pose any significant health risks?
- (bonus) does it minimize the amount that appears outside the box?
Clay, which is mined, is also not considered the most ecological choice. And, many people are suspicious of clay litters, with rumors that some cats may end up with clay messing up their digestive system. I cannot cite research on this, I just know that it’s a worry for some people.
In our house, biodegradable pine pellet litter is our favorite. I find it neutralizes odor better than any other litter I’ve tried. Trader Joe’s sells an inexpensive pine litter that we frequently buy.
Though Feline Pine makes a clumping pine litter, I actually prefer the nonclumping litter because there is no need to scoop out clumps when the odor is neutralized.
Having said that, I know we are lucky our cats have always taken well to the pellets. If your cat doesn’t like them, even after you’ve introduced it gradually in the mixed-in manner, you’ll need other options.
I haven’t tried it yet, but cat expert JaneA Kelley and her crew at Paws and Effecthave become fans of Blue Naturally Fresh, a clumping formula made of walnut shells. They wrote: “It clumps like concrete, the odor control is great, and the scatter is pretty minimal.” They also mentioned that the original formula clumps better than the multi-cat formula.
In addition, many folks in the Natural Cat community swear by World’s Best Cat Litter, which is made of corn. Bear in mind though, if your cat has a strong digestive sensitivity to grains, corn may not work out.
Interesting option: a plastic-free, convenient system
The nice people at LitterOne sent me a sample of their new product to try out.
Here’s what’s neat about:
- It uses pine pellets (more ecological, very low odor)
- It minimizes litter tracking by having a built-in sifting tray under the litter, which collects the sawdust created when a cat urinates on pine pellets
- You’ll never have to use a plastic bag (or even scooper!) for cat litter again.
